Pretty Red and Black



I have been busy working on some things I will be able to post later and missed posting yesterday.  Today I am showing you another card I made with the pretty Cheery Lynn "Judy's Blooms" die (C184).  As you know, you can get this pretty flower die from Joan's Gardens.  The beautiful butterfly is one I don't think I have used yet.  This is one of the Cheery Lynn "Exotic Butterfly Small" dies (DL113).   The red and white designer paper is from the Echo Park Paper Co. "Dots & Stripes" paper pad.  The lacy frame was punched using the Martha Stewart "String Lace" punches and the white background was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Swirls" embossing folder.  

To create the flowers, two large and one small flower (Judy's Blooms) were layered.  They were shaped with the large white tool in the Flower Tool Kit.  The centers (stamens) were created with the large "Sparkle" punch.  The leaves are also from the "Judy's Blooms" die. 

As you know, you an purchase all your Cheery Lynn dies from Joan's Gardens.

Love the red and black and your card is gorgeous. As I won Judy's Bloom die when you kindly offered it as blog candy Selma and I have most of the other components I wont have to spend anything to make a card similar to yours! Lol!
The flowers are beautiful so I hope mine turn out as good. Hope your back is improving.

Love Sheila xx
